The Authority has received several specific complaints of bullying. These have identified a number of more general matters requiring investigation.
The independent review by Debbie Francis that the Police have commissioned will be focusing primarily on the systems and processes for dealing with bullying complaints. The Authority's investigation will necessarily be wider and will consider whether there are ongoing organisational, cultural, management or practice issues that foster bullying or allow it to occur.
Those who wish to make a complaint or otherwise provide information relevant to this inquiry may contact the Authority by emailing: firstname.lastname@example.org
The identities of those who contact the Authority and the information provided will be treated in confidence and will not be passed on to the New Zealand Police or any other person without consent.
